The former US President George H.W. Bush was finally discharged from the hospital since being admitted in late May. He was being treated for low blood pressure complications.


His spokesperson, Jim McGrath took to Twitter on Monday to announce the good news. The former President’s stay at the Maine hospital wasn’t all gloomy as his granddaughters went in for a visit.

Former President George H.W. Bush, 93, was discharged from Southern Maine Health Care on Monday. On May 27, he was hospitalized near his summer home in Kennebunkport.

This was a little more than a month after his wife, Barbara Bush, died at 92 on April 17. Bush’s hospital stay was brightened up when he enjoyed a fun-filled visit from granddaughter Barbara, 36, over the Memorial Day weekend.


Her twin sister, Jenna, told Megyn Kelly about the visit during a recent Today show appearance. Jenna shared that her sister had read to him every day and their weekend was wonderful.

She also added, “They ate oysters and he drank a martini!” The audience on the show was thrilled by this news as they cheered and laughed.

‘President @GeorgeHWBush was discharged from @SMHCHealth today after being treated for low blood pressure. The president is deeply appreciative both for the terrific care and the many good wishes he has received.’

Jenna recently shared that the Bushes would be traveling to Maine to visit the former President for his 94th birthday. His birthday will be on June 12.

She shared that she was looking forward to it.


Jenna also revealed that her grandfather has been in good spirits despite his hospitalization. She explained that he always worried more about other people than he did about himself.
